Organisers of this year’s Youghal St Patrick’s Day parade have cancelled the event over concerns about the current coronavirus outbreak.

It comes as the number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Ireland rises to 13, including one case in a person who does not have a history of travel to the affected areas. This patient, a male from the south of the country, is being treated at Cork University Hospital.
